I have to admit I have not paid for my hair to be cut in years too. I use the home clippers too, just think it is time for someone to do a really good job with it though.

If ican be bothered it cost me nothing because i have some clippers & just shave it all off, but i have been getting lazy recently & find a cheap barbers that will do it for around £5.
£5! It used to cost me about £11.50 and that was years ago.
I haven't paid someone to cut my hair in about 8 years.
Clippers? No hair? Someone cutting it for free?
If I don't have my hair cut regularly (I pay £9 by the way) all the women in my office comment.
If I tried to cut my own hair they would just laugh at me.
I did mention hair dye once - well you can image the comments - suffice to say I won't be trying that!

£9 is good too.
£9 is ok, but I do feel a little guilty when the hairdresser gives me my £1 change.
But on the other hand I think he is crafty as he always cuts my hair 'not too short' which probably means that I have to go more often.

Rubbish, you beat me to it, as I had to turn my laptop on!
Anyway, it was this:

I was going to use this, but the picture is awful.
"Open up, it's the pigs!"
Buy some good quality clippers gel, and do it yourself.
Wahl are good, but I've just bought these, and they are excellent.
Those do look good. What's the LiIthium Ion battery like? My first pair of clippers lasted about 4 years before the battery started to go. Each of my subsequent sets have lasted much less time. I bought some expensive Wahl clippers last time which work well but I now have them on permanent charge between cuts otherwise they won't last a full cut. So the main criteria is battery longeivity for me - and I've not found anything good for a while.
Congrats on the win - we both needed that!
I've had them since Xmas, and on average, I cut my hair every 3 weeks, and they're still on the first charge.
I got some Wahl clippers for Xmas too! Don't know how much they cost though, I will see if I can find them.
What do you think? Too cheap to be good? They don't seem to cut well!
I think I might buy these - cheers. Do they cut really good then?
